Put the sails on which I designed myself.. happy so far but must admit I prefer a fishing boat to a yacht!!

Nice ideas Martin, I did the VOR as a challenge from my company (Musto / Helly Hansen). It was in one of my stores looking sorry for itself! I am more into a working trawler or Gill netter... been working on Cygnus style boats recently (see blogs Emily PII and Emily PIII) but am thinking my next one could be a steel boat as I do like a bit of rust!!!

I have been lucky enough to acquire a replica VOR model from one of my stores.

I intend to restore the damaged parts, add some additional detail and give it a paint job in 'Musto' livery..
